I am playing with zc.winauth authentication in my corporate intranet.

It works great, but I have one issue: authentication takes much time (almost 10 
seconds). This wouldn't be problem, but authentication is done not only on 
login, but repeated for every HTTP GET. This means that every page load takes 
at least 10 seconds when ActiveDirectory-authenticated user is logged in. See 
log below for example.

IMHO sane behavior would be: authenticate with ActiveDirectory once (on login) 
and then authenticate basing only on cookie, which should be quick. Am I right?

I suspect my problem may be a configuration issue in my PAU (for example: wrong 
order of plugins). Could you help me how to configure PAU (or suggest how to 
modify zc.winauth) to resolve this problem? - - [12/Oct/2006:08:52:58 +0200] "GET / HTTP/1.1" 200 4658
